How We Met

My friend asked to borrow my cat trap to catch a skinny feral kitten that was begging for food but wouldnt let anyone near him. She returned the trap to me the next day complete with kitten. She said it was to wild for her to keep. I had took take my Sassy to cross the bridge the next day and I took him as well for a check up and testing. Everyone on CC said he was sent to me to comfort me so he is home.

Happy Thanksgiving to your and yours! I hope you had a most wonderful day celebrating and giving thanks for the blessings that we have been given. I know I did.

Today we will take a quick trip to see a special parade, then will return to the castle in the morning! Hope you enjoy!

:._.: Paseo Del Rio! :._.:

I hope your bags are packed, we are flying to San Antonio, Texas for the Parade on the River!

:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:. _.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:.

The Riverwalk is one of the most visited places in all of Texas and San Antonio has a world of fun and exciting things to do and see.

If you tried to imagine a place where the sights, sounds and flavors of Native America, Old Mexico and the Wild West blend effortlessly with the hustle and bustle of a modern city, it would probably look a lot like the San Antonio River Walk.

We will spend the day here in San Antonio, there is so much to do and the food is fabulous! We will go shopping at the Mercado then head over to the Riverwalk.

The San Antonio Riverwalk is bigger and better than ever before. It features new Riverwalk footage, beautiful landscaping and lighting at night. The Holiday River parade is a floating parade of 25 or so professionally decorated and lighted River Barges.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the parade, which always falls on the day after Thanksgiving. Before the parade, there is a special Lighting Ceremony, in which 1.4 million LED Christmas lights are turned on along the Riverwalk.

:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:. _.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:.

After the parade, we will enjoy colorful drinks at a cafe along the Riverwalk and watch the Mariachi bands stroll past the lighted luminarias.

:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:. _.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:._.:*~*:.
There is a picture of a parade float on my page.

Tomorrow I will be posting a simple Thanksgiving blessing on the CMR page only, and will not be doing regular visiting or expecting visitors or votes. I hope you spend the time counting your blessings and giving thanks. I know I will.

I am most thankful for the caring CC community of furriends and I wish each of you a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving♥

Our last day in Chicago, we stop in Daly Plaza at the Christkindlmarket , a European arts and crafts market

The Christkindlmarket is a German traditional holiday market that has made its way to Chicago. There are unique crafts and gifts for sale and a variety of entertainment and German foods.

We say goodbye to CHI-town and cast our last glances as the city sky line grows distant.
* - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - *

On the way home, we decide to take a mini-detour into Indiana and stop in Lafayette to visit the Route 66 diner. Inside the diner is a nice trip through Route 66 history. Posters, postcards, wall hangings, clocks, tin signs are simply everywhere. If you’re a Route 66 fan, it’s worth a visit just for the atmosphere

We sample the diner's special offerings: a hand-cut breaded tenderloin sandwich (A Hoosier specialty!) and a peanut butter hamburger. We are thrilled at the delightful taste!
* - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - *

Our tour bus, (and many U-Haul trailers), arrive home at the castle and we spend the evening in the gathering room around the great fireplace. We plan our Thanksgiving meal , and start to prepare the pies for tomorrow.

I am glad you enjoyed shopping along the Magnificent Mile yesterday! It was great seeing you at the rink last night! Whoo hoo didn't it feel pawsome to have a winning game!

The picture at the bottom of my page yesterday is the iconic Water Tower, built in 1869 from yellow Joliet limestone.


:o) Noble Horse Theatre :o)

Today we are spending the day in Old Town in Chicago and are attending a purrformance of the Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet at a charming stable with loads of character.

This is the only theatre in North America to perform the Nutcracker ballet on horseback, and is quite an amazing gem in the middle of the city. The show is a combination of theater, dance and spectacular horsemanship.

We hear the familiar and beautiful music by Tchaikovsky, and listen to the narrated story. We will meet Clara, her Uncle, the Mouse King, the Nutcracker Prince and the Sugar Plum Fairy. Trick riders will entertain us during the "Grand Divertissement" when the Sugar Plum Fairy takes Clara and the Nutcracker Prince to the Land of the Sweets.

The horses race at top speed around the ring, jumping hurdles during the fast Russian song, with trick riders leaping and dancing on and off the fast horses. Horses and riders dance with exotic veils during the Arabian dance.

Each of the familar songs is given attention to incorporate the beauty of the horses. We cheer as the snow white Sugar Plum Fairy's horse dances to the beautiful tinkling music.

:o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o- )

After the show, we hurry up to the rail with our carrots and give the amazing creatures some treats. We tell the riders how fabulous the show was, and the riders give the kittens careful rides on the gorgeous horses.

Did you see the tv cameras at the parade yesterday? I think they filmed us having fun! Seriously, ABC filmed the Chicago Festival of Lights parade and entertainments, and if you are interested, you can check out the dot com website themagnificentmile to watch a video or find out when it will be aired in your region.

It felt good to get inside and warm up, didn’t it!


'~' 'Magnificent Mile♥ '~'
'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-. ,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'

There is no more iconic Chicago street than the Magnificent Mile♥

'~'Running the length of Michigan Avenue from the Chicago River to Lake Shore Drive, the ‘Mag Mile’ is the heart of the city’s shopping district. Here, posh brand name stores stand alongside historic and luxury hotels. Landmarks such as the Water Tower and Pumping Station, are among few structures left standing after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-. ,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'

We will have a world class shopping spree at some iconic shops along the Magnificent Mile, and will visit Water Tower Place, a 7-level shopping mall. I hope everyone brought plenty of shopping bags and catbucks!
'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-. ,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'

After the shopping excursion, we head to our hotel, laughing and meowing with our furriends. Tonight we are staying in a Grand Deluxe Suite in the Trump Tower. Our spacious suite has commanding views of Lake Michigan, Chicago River, and the City Skyline. We have a telescope in the room to look out over the cityscape.

The contemporary marble surround fireplace warms us after being outside in the chilly late autumn weather, and we toast some marshmallows, being careful not to get the sticky marshmallow paw prints on the fine furnishings.

I hope you didn’t put your scarf and mittens away quite yet! Today’s activity is based on a real-life event that is taking place in Chicago today! I have more paw warmers, as we will be outside again in the chilly weather. We will have a big thermos of hot cocoa with marshmallows to warm us up as we line the parade route!


'~' Magnificent Mile Lights Festival and Parade '~'
'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-. ,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'

For more than 50 years, the trees along Chicago's North Michigan Avenue have been illuminated to signal the official kick-off of the holiday season.

With the help hundreds of volunteers, the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival encourages everyone to join in the spirit of the holiday season and enjoy a host of festive experiences along Chicago's "Magnificent Mile."
'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-. ,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'

During the day we see gorgeous Ice Sculptures, and we experience choir, theater, and many kinds of live entertainment along the Mag Mile.

The centerpiece of the day-long festival is the evening parade, and the lights on Michigan Avenue are literally illuminated block-by-block as the procession passes. More than 1 million spectators line the parade route each year to see the lighted floats, marching bands, balloons and performing artists.

The 1.2-mile parade route travels under millions of twinkling lights along Michigan Avenue from Oak Street to Wacker Drive.
'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-. ,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'-.,__,.-'~'

The final highlight of this years' Magnificent Mile Lights Festival is fireworks over Chicago River at Wacker Drive. It is quite a show and the perfect start to Chicago's Holiday Season. We sure are enjoying it!

Sometimes history isn't so obvious. :o)

We are spending the day in Chicago’s Old Town. Tonight we will be going to "The Second City" improv theatre to catch a show called “We're All in This Room Together”.
*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*

Second City is a legendary incubator of many of the world's most unforgettable funny men and women. Second City opened in December 1959, with an experimental and unconventional approach to theatre and comedy.

In a day when mother-in-law jokes were expected, the performances at Second City were nonconformist, with a comedy that spoke to a younger generation.

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" debuted with a cast that included Second City Alums John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner. Other performers launched on Second City's stages include Ed Asner, Alan Arkin, Jim Belushi, John Candy, Bill Murray, Chris Farley, Mike Myers , Harold Ramis, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert Tina Fey and so many more.

Second City's buiding has its own history; its roots are in the Hyde Park neighborhood, but it moved to Old Town in 1959 and into its present building in 1967.

Second City now has a sister theatre in Toronto and has international touring ensembles that take shows around the world.
><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*><*

In 1992 Second City formed Outreach and Education programs, and it now provides over $100,000 annually to community and social programs, and provides workshops and performances to thousands of students in K-12 and their teachers.

I am passing out warm woolen mufflers and mittens this morning and I have some paw warmers! It is a chilly day!

:) Ice skating at Millenium Park :)

Today we are experiencing one of Chicago's most popular winter activities, ice skating at Millenium Park.
*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*. *:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*

The park is charming and festive. We have great views of the city's skyscrapers and several of the kitties buy postcards or take pictures of the famous skyline. We sit on the benches and get warmed up with hot cocoa while the maintenance staff run the Zamboni to keep the ice smooth.

:o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o)
FLASH MOB!
:o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o):o)

The Steppenwolf Theatre Group surprises us and does a dancing and ice skating routine to "Do You Believe In Magic"! We cheer for the clever routine that the theatre group does to the music and we offer them some hot cocoa afterward.

As the day turns into evening, our group is seated at the Park Grill Plaza at several "al fresco" tables. We order a hot and delicious meal. The Park Grill Plaza regularly places among the leaders in citywide best-of competitions for best burger, and it is widely praised for its views.

Our hotel is only three blocks away, so we walk there after dinner. We are staying at the Hotel Monaco Chicago, in a huge corner Mediterranean suite with river views. There is a large jacuzzi in the room and wonderfully cushioned, deep window seats for lounging.

*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*. *:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*:*.*

I hope we all had warm jackets, hats and mittens on the sailing ship yesterday! There’s a REASON they call it the windy city! 52 degrees and sunny was pretty good for mid-November! We all warmed up in the Grand Ballroom and everyone looked marvelous!

^~^ Chicago's Gold Coast: ^~^

♦Glamour Meets History on the Near North Side♦
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^
Chicago's Gold Coast, an affluent neighborhood, is full of architectural riches. The best thing about this wealthiest area, is that window shopping is free and we can appreciate the architectural beauty as we take a tour. Two entire blocks of Astor Street are listed on the National Register of Historical places.

Landmarked properties -- most from the 1890s and the first decade of the 20th century -- are everywhere.

Tonight we will be staying at the Gold Coast Drake Hotel

Opened in 1920, the elegant Drake Hotel -- with its incomparable view of Oak Street Beach -- was the first hotel in the city with air-conditioned rooms. Its guests have included royalty and film crews; scenes from "Risky Business" and "My Best Friend's Wedding" and other movies were shot here.

^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^

Before we turn in, we grab a bite to eat at the Billy Goat Tavern. This brightly lit bar was the inspiration for the John Belushi-Dan Aykroyd "cheezborger-cheezborger, no fries, chips" sketches from those old "Saturday Night Live” shows. The walls of the Billy Goat Tavern are covered with pictures of celebrities who have had a cheezborger there

OF course I had to put a picture of this iconic tavern at the bottom of my page!

I was so happy to see so many of you enjoying Navy Pier and eating at Bubba Gump’s! The music was pawsome at the House of Blues and I am so thrilled we had our own cats purrforming…..Jake, Elwood and Mighty Mack Blues!

The song “Sweet Home Chicago” is attributed to blues man Robert Johnson (1911-1937), who was a big influence on later classic rock artists including the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and Led Zeppelin.
<<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>>

Today we will be taking a harbor cruise on Chicago's very own Tall Ship Windy! We depart from Navy Pier and will help raise sail and have an interactive sailing adventure! We will enjoy an architectural tour and learn Great Lakes history and tales of courage. Our sail will end with fireworks over Lake Michigan……I asked them to muffle the loud booms so none of our kitty furriends have to hide below deck!

<<>> Formal Ball –Grand Ballroom - Navy Pier <<>>
<<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><<>>

Later tonight, we have reserved the Grand Ballroom and a full orchestra for a formal ball.

Tall vases of stargazer lilies are on each side of the entrance to the Grand Ballroom. Our furriends are in their tuxedos, top hats, and most exquisite formal ball gowns as they enter the ballroom in the grandest style. The orchestra is playing "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered" as the cats and kitties head to the dance floor for some dancing. We are transported back in time, to a time and place where elegance, melodic music and gentle manners are the theme of the magical night.

Our buffet table is catered by the Navy Pier kitty caterers and features ice sculptures and a wonderful assortment of international taste treats.

The Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier, built in 1916, brings together the storied splendor of Chicago’s past. An ornate 80-foot domed ceiling tops panoramic views of Lake Michigan, offering an incomparable venue for a memoriable gala.

=##= =##= Navy Pier and Chicago House of Blues =##= =##=

We are spending the day today at Navy Pier, which has a rich history and has evolved into one of the most popular spots for people visiting Chicago.

We enter through Gateway Park, along the city's lake front and enjoy seeing the water fountain with its computerized jet streams. We visit the Children's Museum and watch a film at the IMAX theater in the Family Pavilion, then go to the South Arcade and visit the "Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze" and the 3-D ride Transporter FX.

We are eating lunch at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, having a big basket of Peel ‘N Eat Shrimp with Bubba’s Garlic Spice or Secret Recipe Cajun Spice.

The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company is a real-life chain of family-style shrimp restaurants that has the "Forrest Gump" movie theme. It was formed as a joint enterprise between Paramount Pictures and Rusty Pelican restaurants in 1996.

There is a photo collage of Navy Pier at the bottom of my page along with the logo for the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.

I am so glad you enjoyed the WurstFest yesterday! I saw you eating some fried cheesecake and a brat on a stick! I was riding the carousel! You may find it interesting to know the activity was inspired by a real-life event taking place in New Braunfels, Texas this week!

A special big THANK YOU to Josie Mae for setting up a special tent with cocoa and hearty soups for the angels who were spending the day on the east coast, hovering and comforting those affected by the snow on top of the devastation of the storm last week.

^~^ Sadie Hawkins Dance! ^~^

"When ah fires [my gun], all o' yo' kin start a-runnin! When ah fires agin—after givin' yo' a fair start—Sadie starts a runnin'” ^~^ from Al Capp’s classic hillbilly comic strip Li’l Abner (1934-1978).

Sadie was the “homeliest gal in them hills” and her father frantically called together all the unmarried men of Dogpatch and declared “Sadie Hawkins Day” with Sadie in hot pursuit of the eligible bachelors.

The Sadie Hawkins Day was first mentioned in the November 15, 1937 comic strip and the race actually took place between November 19 and November 30.

Due to its enormous popularity, Capp continued it as an annual event for 40 years. LIFE magazine reported over 200 colleges holding Sadie Hawkins Day events in 1939, only 2 years following the initial mention in the popular comic strip. The idea of women asking men to a dance captured the popular imagination of young people, and continues to be an American folk event. It is now observed in Canada as well.

Thanks Wikipedia and Lil-Abner.com!
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^

We will be holding our Sadie Hawkins Dance tonight; a little early, since the Saturday after Nov 9, we will be traveling….

All of the girl kitties are encouraged to take the bold initiative and invite the tomcat of your choice to take a spin around the dance floor! You will hear some super fiddlin’ tunes purrformed by the Charlie Catdaniels Band. We have a buffet table set up with hearty hamster chili, catnip chips with guacamole and we have a keg of catnip ale and plenty of sparkling fruit punch. I don’t imagine anyone will be spiking the punch with moonshine, do you?

Good morning! I hope you enjoyed the day yesterday at the track and the children’s museum. I apologize for the spontaneous train ride; our esteemed candidate “borrowed” the engine and was attracted by the bright shiny levers and buttons. No visitors were hurt and we had a thrilling and unexpected ride through the museum!

Today we will enjoy some German food and music; hope you’re hungry!

"._." It's Wurstfest! "._."


We have a big pawty tent set up on the back lawn of the castle. The tent is colored in rust, green and gold, all the autumn colors. A huge bonfire is burning on the far side of the lawn. A ferris wheel and carousel with painted ponies and zoo animals have been set up for the kittens, and for the fun loving adult cats and kitties.
We are savoring the exciting celebration of the German culture and cats, and some of us are wearing silly hats of T-Rex, unicorn, dragon, alligator, chicken and cow heads. The girls wear drindls and boys wear liederhosen, as they polka and waltz to the good ol' fashioned Oompah band, as it plays its lively music. The couples sail across the dance floor with radiant faces and big grins. Some of the kitties are dancing on the chairs and tables.

"._."

The buffet table features various meats - a lot of bratwurst - on a stick: and fried *everything* including chicken fried bacon, fried cheesecake, fried oreos, and even fried Koolaid. Dip your fried sauerkraut balls into the Dusseldorf style mustard. There is also some hot German potato salad and funnel cakes with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Can't pass that up! We have catbeers in decorative steins for those who drink and cherry and orange soda pops for those who don't.

The big tent is heated but many cats are having a great time outside near the bonfire, enjoying the foodies and meowing with furriends.

I am so glad everyone enjoyed game night at the castle last night. I DID notice several cats playing a serious game of GO FISH; and I thought I better remind everyone that the fishies in K Sams royal library aquarium are NOT to be considered part of the castle snacks!

I apologize to everyone who lost catbucks to Mallow and Captain Rascal’s cardsharking, but I am pretty sure I can purrsuade them to donate the winnings to AnimalRescueSite!

=x= Indy Raceway! =x=

=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x- =
Who's up for an adventure? We are headed to the racing capital of the world to have a thrilling IndyCar race experience! We arrive at the Indoor Go Kart track and put on our race red helmets and get in the karts that look like Indy race track cars. The track is multi-level and the cars are whooshing by at speeds up to 40 MPH. Only the adult cats are allowed on this track; there is a kitten track in the basement.

We all look like champions in our Fasttimes blue jumpsuits as we navigate the twisty turns of the exciting track. The black and white checkered flag waves our winner!
=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=-=x=

It's a good thing I brought plenty of wet wipes; I see our paws are now getting sticky from the cotton candy at the snack bar. After our racing, we will head to the Children’s Museum. We are enchanted by the actor-interpreters as they transform our visit into a wondrous experience!
We watch closely as an actor climbs into the 11,000 pound steam engine in the museum's "All Aboard!" Gallery and starts it up! OH WAIT! That’s not an actor.…..OH DEAR! It looks like an orange cat is taking us for a real railroad ride through the Museum….…the visitors are scattering!

Wasn't that picture with the horse cool? It is mom's favorite of the royal photos. It will be back up before too long! I had to open the Great Hall for Game Night! Hugs!


=^..^= Game night! =^..^=

It's game night at the castle!

The royal game room is set up with card tables. Most of the kitties are playing Texas Hold "Em although a few are playing Bridge and Pinochle. An old timey popcorn popper is churning out popcorn and bowls are being brought around to all the tables. Fresh melted catnip butter is available, as are catnip chips, catbeers and catcolas. We have a supply of catnip cigars, but we ask the gents to go outside for those.

The Grand Hall is filled with colorful canvas Twister mats. Go ahead and entangle yourself with 50 or 60 of your closest furriends! Have a great time laughing as you get so tangled up! Did you know the record for the largest number of contestants in a game of Twister occurred in 1987 with over 4,000 contestants tangling themselves at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst!

We have roller skating for the kittens in the basement, with a multi-colored disco ball. Light up LED hula hoops are set up next to the roller rink, for those who want to try their dance skill with those. It's a challenge at first but you soon get used to the rhythm. Just hula hoop to the sound of the disco tunes playing over the loud speakers.

Put your fuzzy jackets on and step onto the veranda. We are having a rousing game of Charades and are howling with laughter as we try to guess words and phrases. A bonfire is burning outside and some kitties have gathered around the fire and are telling stories and jokes while they play rock, paper, scissors.

< >< ><ROY ROGERS DAY< >< ><

Today we will be celebrating Roy Rogers’ legacy with horseback riding in the palace prairie. We have several golden palominos lined up to ride, and some shaggy palomino ponies for the kittens. We have wooded trails for those who like to ride slowly and explore the area, and a track for those who like to race and ride fast! It’s a little cold, so we should wear jackets and probably not ride through the palace pond.

We will gather later around a campfire and sing “Don’t Fence Me In”.
< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< ><< >< ><

Roy Rogers was born Leonard Franklin Slye on November 5, 1911. He would be 101 today. Rogers was a western singer, a matinee idol and American legend. He has remained an idol for many who were children in the 40’s and the 50’s, through his films and television shows.

In the 1988 film “Die Hard”, Bruce Willis’ character went by the alias "Roy", saying "I was always kinda partial to Roy Rogers actually”.
< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< >< ><< >< ><

“Until we meet again, may the good Lord take a liking to you.” Roy Rogers

It was a great time at the pep rally last night! I should mention that the picture at the bottom of my page- with fireworks - is from an actual pep rally near my home.
In Notre Dame, Indiana, pep rallies are community events, and thousands of people of all ages attend for fun and to support the team! The university is our county’s 3rd largest employer, and our economy bustles during football season!


"._." Wake up! It's GAME DAY! "._."

We are getting up in the wee hours of the morning to take the big RV and park it on the parking lot in front of the football stadium. We will be grilling burgers and bratwursts and enjoying our favorite beverages, while the kittens go to get their faces painted. We venture out and buy some football shaped beads to wear around our necks and a cap with our team logo printed on it.

Later, those of us who like to watch football will head into the stadium. Those who don't will hang out at the RV, take a campus tour, play frisbee or bicycle in the lovely fall weather. We enjoy the vibrant red, yellow and gold leaves, and we notice many of the leaves have now fallen from the trees.

The air is chilly and we head back to the RV for steaming hot cocoa or coffee. We smell the popcorn popping and can hear the percussion echoing as the marching band takes the field. The roar of the crowd and the sounds of the band fill the air as the boys on the team come running out, cheerleaders parading flags in front of them.

Our team wins and we celebrate with a lot of loud whooping. We make our way back to the RV and spend more time hanging out and watching replays on the TV before we make our way back to the castle.

Thank you so much for the concatulations! I am so thrilled you were able to come last night and be part of a magical night! Thanks for making it so special!

Thanks for such a lovely compliment on my gown. Boo Kitty’s mom did an amazing job with the photgraphs! I do feel very royal and beautiful in it!


^~^ PEP RALLY! ^~^

There's a lot to do near my home in October and November! This time of year, it's a bustling place with a lot of folks coming in from out of town to witness fierce rivalries. Many wear face paint and have bright flags waving from the top of their cars. These activities center around American college football, and have a long history of tradition. One of our special traditions is the Friday night pre-game pep rally. There are also many Game Day events, and the streets are filled with block parties and live music on Saturdays in September, October and November.

^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^
Tonight we go to the pep rally!
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^

Choose your favorite team, or just come to enjoy a crisp, cool autumn evening with the smells of grilling burgers and steaks in the air. We will check out the tents, buy some fan spirit wear, and say hey to our furriends on the green, as we wait for the energetic pom squad to take the stage. The team mascot gets us pumped up and yelling loudly as he introduces the coach and players. Some of us wait in the lines for pizza, others for mouseburgers, steak sandwiches or beverages. This is a community family event and kittens of all ages are welcome.

We are so excited and fired up after the rally and we head into the legendary restaurant on the green. We have reserved a big table and we admire the framed pictures of heros of yesterday. We are all wearing our new spiritwear and we laugh, meow loudly, and wave animatedly at our furriends.

Later that night, we come back for the midnight drum circle. It's chilly so we wrap our blankets around us. The kittens can hardly keep their eyes open, so the nursery cats take them home before the percussion display is ended.

^~^ Día de los Angelitos ^~^

Today, November 1, is the Day of the Little Angels, also known as All Saints Day. We are gathering with our candles and bringing flowers to honor our sweet Angels who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We remember our dear Angelitos by telling stories and hugging each other. I have many tissue boxes: We will need the tissues as we hug.

When the sky grows dark, we celebrate our Angels by lighting the sky with Angel Fireworks. Dinner is on the terrace with a cozy fire in the Chimera for warmth in the cool late Autumn night air. We watch the Angel Fireworks and we bow our heads as we are led in a Candlelight Memorial.

We remember and honor dear furriends we lost during October; including Gracie, Spike, Kuce, Aby/aka HC (c/o Ping), Pixie (c/o Joseph), Leo (c/o Saraha) Poppins (c/o Ping).

^~^ Eternal Spirit, we bring you our grief in the loss of our dear Angels, and we ask for the courage to bear it. We bring you our thanks for our dear Angels who lived among us and gave us freely of their love. We commit our friend and companion Angels into your loving hands. Give us eyes to see how your love embraces all creatures and every living thing speaks to us of your love. Amen. ^~^

☔ Halloween haunting via the NICE Crew ☔
It's a cold, breezy wet day in our neck of the woods so we're not sure how many ghosts & goblins will brave the weather to knock on unsuspecting victim's doors tonight as they search for treats, but we're sure that some will.
Since it's the last day of October it means my time as the family blogger has come to a close & another will take over tomorrow. Hold onto your tails & put everything away because our maniacal little Fluffers is next in line for regular blogging duty...MOL! Zaboo will be the special event attendee & Angel Cloudy will be our on-call angel for anything or anyone that needs some angel intervention. It's been a fun month visiting with all of you to offer my purrceptions & I'll miss you. Remember, if you ever need a strong paw to whack your young kits in line all you've got to do is meow & I'll pounce over to paw them back into place for you. In other words...never fear for Patches is always near...MOL!
We're thrilled to read that so many of our furiends have now been reached through various sources & will continue to keep them in our prayers as the clean-up begins. We're still saying prayers for our dear CC furiends that haven't checked in yet too & are hoping they're just without power & nothing more serious has happened. To end my time with you I located a poem to share. I've pawed a ghost shaped vote into your collection bucket & leaving you a caramel apple in honor or National Caramel Apple Day! Have a safe & happy Halloween!!

Haunting meows,
Patches & NICE Crew

~Halloween Wishes~

Since this is the time for goblins and bats,
Halloween spirits, ghosts and cats,
Weird-happenings and witches brew,
These are the things I wish for you.

May the only spirit you chance to meet,
Be the spirit of love and warm friends sweet.
May the tricks that you are asked to do,
Be a trick to help you gain a friend or two.

So, by tomorrow, pick three friends sweet,
And give them all a Halloween treat.
You only have one day, so hurry!
Leave a treat on the doorstep, then flee in a hurry!

Hi Teammate Indy!
Let’s continue to hold paws in a prayer circle until we hear from all of our furriends. Most did check in yesterday but there are a few very dear furriends that we haven’t heard from since Monday. Let’s hope and pray we hear from them today and pray for the families in the areas hit so hard that they may begin the massive rebuilding effort and return to a normal daily life.

I can't believe it.......it's my final catpaign blog.......

♥Thanks so much for a month I will NEVER forget! What a super wonderful and rewarding experience! Both my mom and I thank you so much for your kind comments, your visits, your wonderful encouragement, and most of all, your dear furriendship!♥

The coronation is Thursday, November 1st at 8 pm. Our November candidate will be announced today!

Boo Boo Kitty ~ Laverne and Shirley
"._."._."._."._."._."._."._."._."._."._."._."._."

Shirley had a stuffed black kitty she called Boo Boo Kitty. Shirly would hug and talk to her Boo Boo Kitty when she was sad. Laverne once seriously offended Shirley by using Boo Boo Kitty as a pincushion when she was hemming a skirt. Shirley's boyfriend Carmine won Boo Boo Kitty for her at a carnival.

The term has now found its way into the Urban Dictionary and can be used either as a term of affection for one's "significant other" or as an expression of feeling depressed or dejected. An example: "When I couldn't fit into my skinny jeans, I was all Boo Boo kitty"

There is a picture of Boo Boo Kitty in my gallery. That other picture.....that's my Halloween costume....HELLO BAST! Halloween hugs and good luck to you all!

Hi Teammate Indy!
Our prayer circle continues…..
We continue to watch the mewsroom for news of our furriends and join our paws in a prayer circle. If anyone has news to share, please post it on CMR. We all are anxious to hear that our dear furriends are safe. Sadly, power may not be restored for some for several days.

I did see that the biker cat from yesterday’s story has been featured in an episode of Cats 101. And Angel Q Gracie correctly figured out that Chris Coppola, Otto’s special purrson, is brother to actor Nicolas Cage.

^~^ Rastus, the Biker Cat of New Zealand ^~^

Rastus was a black cat, described as either a Burmese or Bombay cross (sounds familiar!). He was born in Vancouver, BC and met his soul mate purrson, Max Corkill, a bike customizer and restorer. One day Max found Rastus asleep on one of the bikes in his workshop. He started it up to see if Rastus would jump off; he didn't and Max took him for a ride. He discovered that Rastus loved to ride motorcycles with his forepaws on the handlebars and his back paws on the tank. Max had a leather cover made to fit over the tank and a specially made little helmet and goggles. For longer trips, he would ride in a specially made zipped pouch with his head peeping out, since the tank sometimes became very hot.

Rastus returned with Max to New Zealand had to spend six months in quarantine. Once he was cleared, the pair devoted their time to raising money for animal charities and visited schools to tell children about the importance of caring for pets. They starred in a television ad, and Rastus had a fan club.

Every year he would put on a Santa outfit and Max would disguise the bike as a sleigh. It is said that Rastus obeyed Max's commands and had "growling" replies, rather than meowing like a cat. There is a series of children's books; and also a book about their travels written by Max's nephew, called "The Road They Traveled."

^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^

A special pair indeed! Sadly, this dear duo departed our world far too soon! Let's light a candle in memory of Rastus and Max. There is a picture of the two of them in action in my gallery. Thanks to purr-n-fur.org.uk for this special story.
